I'm a portrait and documentary photographer, graduate of the International Center of Photography in New York City. I've been working on stories for newspapers, magazines and for non-profits for over a decade. My first roll of film though (I started with b&w film) was lame and completely forgettable. Actually, my first few rolls of film were completely forgettable. But with practice, guidance and looking at photographs my techniques and seeing improved. Family, friends and eventually editors started to appreciate my photographs, and I was published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Conde Nast Traveler, among others.
I've taught undergraduate documentary photography classes at University level, as well as one-on-one tutoring sessions. Like my students, I had to learn camera settings, composition and creating an image that tells a story (and many other aspects of photography). So whether you hadn't held a 'real' camera before, already know something about photography techniques or are looking to work on a personal project, I'd be glad to work with you. My goal is to help you improve your photography. Though, I can't promise your photos will appear in The New York Times... :)
I teach two-week documentary photography and photojournalism courses to undergraduates at Academy of Arts, University of Nova Gorica in Slovenia.
I've been a pro photographer for over a decade, working with various clients and pursuing personal, passion projects.
